It's a word game to me, Mike. so what owners allowed me to pay for one time
review? or 2 times? i'm not sure if there is a defintion of how many time
or/and how often i can view the content. Anyway it's word game to lawyers
and politicians. If i pay for smth i should have a clear understanding that
i can either store it or can not. As it goes right now - there is none.
